suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Sift Studio/adam FURE: Hover is a study in perceptual thickness. Space, sound, light and matter are crafted not as separate layers of a multi-media project but as tangled strands of a multisensory knot. A base of cotton batting that is stretched, burnt, and painted carves a series of compressed passageways. This same physical source is sonically sampled, spliced and amplified. Sensors tracking movement alter details in the sound, using presence and touch to thicken the acoustic air that hovers throughout.
sP: What or who influenced this project?
aF: Dead cows, old batt insulation I see in abandoned homes in Detroit, Bois and Krauss’s discourse on Formless art, color, texture, Henri Maldiney’s description of Art as a rhythmic unfolding, Brian Massumi’s description of Charles Pierce and Gilles Deleuze.
